Dating apps: Can't live with them, can't live without them.But seriously, sometimes things go so wrong—like endless date with a cringe-worthy guy wrong—that you can't help but wonder why you're on the app in the first place.I found out about it because I made some sort of inappropriate joke, and he followed up his laugh with, ' You're about to lose a bunch of people in my office a bunch of money.' I made it about 30 minutes until he started pointing out specific people in the bar and telling me what sort of plans he was going to make with them for us (some many months in advance).I went into the bathroom, called my roommate, and had her come get me.So the next time you go on a seriously awful date you'll know that you're not alone.We're right here with you."I went on a four-hour (FOUR-HOUR) Tinder date with a match who proceeded to walk me through the intricacies of Excel. Hours." -Jo, 22"I met a guy on Tinder and drove to a different state just to meet up with him.
" -Jessi, 25"I had one guy bring his entire office to our first date because they had an office pool going about how it would go and didn't trust him to be honest.
We were sitting at a table in the dining room, and I noticed a bunch of people perched around the bar, watching us.
I was working at a research center for war and genocide at the time, and I guess enough people at the office thought I'd be super depressing, so they made an office pool, March Madness-style.
His argument was that he was an EMT and has a sister, so he "knows all about these things." My argument was that I've had a vagina for 20 years.
Needless to say, he went home the next morning, and I've neither talked to or seen him since. Things were going really well, and he eventually almost moved in with me and my family.
I bypassed and watched him drink his body weight in shots before he started crying about his ex-girlfriend and then threw up down my shoulder when I was trying to walk him home.
